Memories 2018 AGM

Fond Memories of Ontario Waterways Annual 2018_ 2018 OHCG Annual  “Hooked on Waterways”  Ottawa, May 4-6, 2018  Ottawa Convention Centre  55 Colonel By Drive  Ottawa ON, K1N 9J2  Submitted by Ti Seymour & Claire Fradette  Nothing gets you in the mood to get creative, than a challenge from a friend.  So when Claire Fradette sent me a photo of her frog on a lily pad looking for love, I knew I had to help.  I whipped up another Lily Pad with a Remax sign and Claire got right on the job of making a lady frog to accompany it.  This was all in aid of the Olde Forge Rug Hookers call for hooked items for table decorations at the gala.  We wonder where this cute pair settled in the end.
